There was the most amazing sunset a couple of days ago. I saw it through my windows as I was driving home from work and as soon as I got home, I grabbed the camera and raced out to take some pictures...but, of course, it was all over. The sky was still beautiful, though, so I took a wander around the neighbouring streets and took these pictures. Here's what they are, from the top:
- This is my favourite spot at the moment. I discovered it on a walk a few weeks ago - it's a vacant block down a laneway not far from our house. There are these enormous cacti at one end of the block, and around them a huge pile of junk - old tyres, abandoned furniture, broken bits and pieces. Then in the middle of the block is what's left of what looks like an outhouse (you can see it on the right in the photo). It's fantastic that that's the only structure left on the block.
- This is a church at the top of the hill on Shakespeare Street, right around the corner from our street, Austen Lane - all the streets around us have author's names, which I really like.
- I love this house. You can't tell much from the picture but it's so pretty and has a beautiful, rambling garden. Hopefully this is where I'll live some day!
- A cherry blossom tree in our street - so beautiful!
- The last glimpses of that magnificent sunset.
